LinkedIn links into Equinix’s Chicago data center

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio


Equinix, the large data center hosting company, announced today that LinkedIn, an online social network for professionals, is expanding their presence within the company by renting out space in one of Equinix’s Chicago data centers.

LinkedIn already rents space in two of Equinix’s Silicon Valley area locations. The release didn’t say how much space in Chicago LinkedIn would be renting out, or in which Chicago data center it would be in. Equinix now has three data centers totaling about 500,000 square feet of space in the Chicago area.

Equinix’s newest location in the Chicago area is located in a northwestern suburb called Elk Grove Village. We went on a video tour of that Equinix facility earlier this year.
